The talk included some of his most famous quotes, including “I have no fear,” and his description of his personal philosophy: “Empty your mind, be formless…like water. Now, you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle…Be water, my friend.”
For years, it was feared that the interview was lost to history, but it resurfaced in 1994 and can be readily viewed online at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLriSM0VlJ4
